What MERS Did To Real Estate . . . Wall $treet SPEED TRADERS Will Do to The $tock Market

Services for Real Estate Pros with Marketing with Kate

I have thought for quite a while that computers were the real culprit behind the market meltdown....we all need to be aware of this information.  It's important.

On 10.10.10 I watched a 60Minutes segment about the SPEED TRADERS on Wall $treet.  The only thing is, these SPEED TRADERS aren't even on Wall $treet.  And, they aren't even flesh and blood stock traders.  They are . . . computers.

For those of you who can wrap your heads around what MERS, ET AL did to the real estate market by "securitizing," then selling MBS -- then you'll be the same folks that might get a real kick out of SPEED TRADERS.

But first, I want you to watch this blast from the past.  Aired 10.8.08. 




At MINUTE MARKER 2:30 we hear Steve Kroft's voice:  "These complex financial instruments were actually designed by mathematicians and physicists who used algorithms and computer models to reconstitute the unreliable loans in ways that were supposed to eliminate most of the risk"

To put the above sentence into laymens' terms:  GEEKS were "programming" the housing market!!

OH GEEZ . . .

Two years later, 60Minutes aired this 10.10.10:




Steve Kroft says: "These supercomputers, which actually decide which stocks to buy and sell, are operating on highly secretive instructions programmed into them by math wizards . . . "

HA HA HA  Math WIZARDS.  The Almighty WIZARDS OF . . . OZ?!? 

What Steve really means is:  GEEKS are now "programming" the stock market!!

These WIZARDS are, apparently, manipulating in "REALMS" they ought not be.  The Stock Market . . .

With the market soaring -- SOARING -- close to 12,000 . . . it's all smoke and mirrors folks.  The PUMP and DUMP of the $tock Market.  READ THE LINK! 

And I'd like to take this moment to offer my sincerest thanks (in advance) to the folks that brought us:  The Market Crash of 2001 2010.   Thank you . . . thank you SO MUCH YOU MATH WIZARDS, YOU!

Hi, Kate, thanks for the reblog.  I saw this earlier.  I recall when the market took a dump of more than 600 points it was mentioned in the media news that it was a computer gliche.  Some gliche!!

Kate, I wouldn't have caught this without the reblog. I'm finding out the benefit of their use now. I'll have to come back because this is a little lengthy but so intriguing and informative. It's one of those thing I like but can hate simultaneously. Nothing personal.

Pamela - I remember that 600 point market glitch too.  This is very scary stuff. 

Kevin, I too am learning to love re-blogs.  I haven't had the chance to digest all of it, but I am going to do my part to make sure people see it.

Kate -- thanks for the reblog.  I still think you should go ahead and write your post!!  Anything that is this amazing diabolical -- which is the point Kevin makes.  Love to hate . . . it's evil genius.  And we're living through this period in history.

Carla, we really are.  It almost makes you think that the 2012 end of the world scare could be true!

It's all so unreal - and yet it continues to go on, and we are all stuck with the fallout.

Gerogina, you are right.  We are helpless bystanders.  Congress is in bed with the "Bansters"  The only thing that we can do is educate ourselves and plan accordingly.
